New pop up bar
There is a new collaboration in town. On the 16th and 17th of April you’ll find the courtyard at Quayside turn into Cambridge’s number one oyster and bubblers bar. For Café Foy’s reopening weekend (yes everybody we can finally dine outside again), they have teamed up with the Oyster Lab to serve a selection of oyster flavours from 4pm onwards. You can either enjoy your oysters at Café Foy or take them away.
Café Foy is an independent café bar created by Cambridge locals who have a love for good food, good wine and good conversation all in front of the River Cam. During the UK Lockdowns this café had to shut it doors to customers, but offered a take away service for the walkers who were out for their daily exercise. This riverside establishment is once again open for all to enjoy, just in time for summer. Located on the Quayside area of Cambridge, drinking and dinning venues do not get much better than this. Whether you want to grab one of their awesome toasties on the go, or sit and sip a Pimm’s whilst watching the punts float by, Café Foy has it all. From day time dinning to early evening drinks, the staff at Foy will always make you feel welcome.
… On a side note, they also offer dinning events, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled for these on their instagram feed for more information.
The Oyster Lab
The Oyster Lab, has made a big difference to the dining scene in our wonderful city. Henry, the founder has been a chef for eleven years and started this new pop up last year in October. Henry saw that there was a gap in the market for oysters, with no one was showcasing the delights of this shell fish. It all commenced with some sparkling wine & oyster tastings at The Senate Bistro. The concept of the Oyster Lab was to offer unique ways of adding flavour to oysters, this was a niche concept but the tastings showed how much people were missing this type of dish, especially in Cambridge.
The Oyster Lab are looking to collaborate with a variety of local independents in Cambridge and showcase the local talent. What better place to do this than on Cambridge’s Quayside, which was once a working port bringing in goods such as fish, wine, salt and luxuries by boat to the city.
Make sure you don’t miss out on this collaboration! The Oyster Lab will be at Foy every Friday & Saturday over the summer. Why not mix up your normal dinner reservations or take your staycation this year to the next level with oysters & Bubbles in Cambridge for an incredible evening to remember. Or alternatively you can bring the oysters & bubbles onboard on of our Cambridge punting tours to end your day in style. Drop either Café Foy or the Oyster Lab a message on instagram for more information.
